  • Do you remember how we lit up the room?
    And how you felt
    Before you met all my different moods?
    But now I drive you mad
    When I hit you with the truth
    Oh-oh, oh

    Don't let your mind
    Think it's someone else
    Someone else
    I need to do something for myself, oh-oh

    Don't wait up
    Don't wait up, up, up, up, up
    Don't wait up
    Don't wait up, up, up, up, up
    Don't be afraid if it gets late, yeah
    You'll survive, it's just one night
    Don't wait up
    Don't wait up, up, up, up, up, up, up

    Why won't you put down your phone
    And look me in the eye?
    Got all dressed up for you
    But you seem so occupied
    Maybe space is all it takes
    It's time to fix us

    Don't let your mind
    Think it's someone else
    Someone else
    I need to do something for myself, oh-oh

    Don't wait up
    Don't wait up, up, up, up, up
    Don't wait up
    Don't wait up, up, up, up, up
    Don't be afraid if it gets late, yeah
    You'll survive, it's just one night
    Don't wait up
    Don't wait up, up, up, up, up, up, up, ah

    First I kissed you
    Then I got mad at you
    'Cause I wish I'd
    Be happy without you
    If I ditch you
    Then maybe you would understand
    Then maybe you would understand

    I need to do something for myself, oh-oh-oh

    Don't wait up
    Don't wait up, up, up, up, up
    Don't wait up
    Don't wait up, up, up, up, up
    Don't be afraid if it gets late, yeah
    You'll survive, it's just one night
    Don't wait up
    Don't wait up, up, up, up, up, up, up, ah
